I take all my photos in the RAW mode, Canon CRW and THM file format and convert to linear tiff 16 bit with BreezeBrowser by Chris Breeze. I use Roger Cavanagh's PhotoShop action LinearSharpen Menu (LSM) to convert from linear tiff which provides a convenient method for specifying options for processing linear files and is structured so that a single image or a batch of images can be easily processed with the same settings. LSM has additional sharpening levels to Pekka Saarinen's LinearSharpen v3.42 original four, however the core of LS v3.42 remains the same. I have found that converting from linear tiff with LSM I get excellent colors and it negates the need of a camera profile.
10D/20D FILE PROCESSING:
I use Bibble Pro created by Eric Hyman and his team at Bibble Labs Inc to convert the CR2 raw files to jpeg or tiff files.
To reduce the time of post processing in Photoshop I use Bibble Plug-Ins created by Sean Puckett.
My printing is done on the Canon i9900 and Epson 3800 photo printers using Mike Chaney's Qimage Pro which is an excellent printing program with full color management (ICC/ICM) support. To take advantage of the color management capabilities of Qimage Pro I have created custom profiles with Profile Prism also by Mike Chaney. The paper profiles I have created with Profile Prism are very accurate and superior to those I have created with MonacoEZcolor or WiziWYG.
I store all the CRW,THM, and CR2 files (Canon Raw files) on DVD and use Archive Creator by Michael Tapes and Peter Morrone to create the archive.
